WHEN TO PLANT PASSIFLORA SEEDS
Sow seeds in
late winter or early spring. While some will germinate after about a month,
some seeds can take up to 48 weeks to germinate.
WHERE TO PLANT PASSIFLORA SEEDS
vines thrive in full sun or partial shade, in loose, sandy, or gravelly, moist,
well-drained soils. Do not provide too much manure or compost or this will
result in lush vegetable growth and poor flowering. Provide a trellis, fence,
or brick wall for your vine to climb. If planted indoors, vine will grow to
about 5′ tall, whereas they will grow up to 15-20′ tall outdoors.
HOW TO PLANT PASSIFLORA SEEDS
seeds 24 hours before planting. In place of soaking in water, you can soak
seeds in pulpy passion fruit juice- the acid helps break down the seed shell to
improve germination. Sow seeds about 1/4″ deep in potting soil. Keep soil
damp, but not too wet.
HOW TO CARE FOR PASSIFLORA
If starting seeds indoors, harden off and
transplant to the garden after the seedlings have 4-5 leaves. Keep plants well
watered through the summer months, watering infrequently but deeply to
encourage deep root growth. During the winter months, keep the soil on the dry
side so it will go semi-dormant, or you may choose to bring plants indoors for
the cold season. Prune new growth occasionally to promote flowering.
All seeds will come in a resalable plastic zip lock bag and placed
in a bubble envelope so the seeds are not damaged by shipping machines. All
seed packets contain no fillers or other weeds or seeds mixed in. Most have
been harvested by hand & all test at a high germination rate.
We guarantee that all seed orders will contain the quantity
ordered. Unlike many sellers who sell seeds by weight, all seed our counts are
almost always correct, as the seeds are packaged and counted by hand. Seed
packages are all double checked to insure accuracy. We do our best and will
often add extra seeds.
We are a seller that caters to experienced gardeners. (germination
and plant care information is readily available online. Most of our listings
include germination instructions, so we do not ship growing instructions.

***Note: It is normal for
tropical seed germination to be sporadic from as little as 30 days to 6 months
or more- so patience is required. Buyers should do their own research for plant
uses if needed.
BE PREPARED – Some Seed can be
somewhat difficult to germinate – much patience and time may be required –
please don’t be wondering why the seeds have not germinated after short periods
of time. This is normal. Several months will be needed for some seed.
Some seeds require some experience in growing. We provide
germination guidance and recommend that you do some research before ordering if
you feel unsure. Growing plants from seed is supposed to be fun. Sometimes it
is successful and sometimes not- this is the way it is with gardening. Because
we are not there to plant them, we cannot be responsible for germination
failure due to improper planting or climate conditions. We will always send you
Seed is a live product which depends on many important grower
skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, light
intensity, proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides,
soil conditions, and reasonable weather during the growing period. These
factors are totally out of the sellers control, and germination and growing
results are the buyer’s responsibility and risk.
